QUILTS FOR KIDS WHOSE PARENT(S) IS/ARE INCARCERTED
We are participating in a prison-related ministry to give 230 quilts to kids whose parent(s) is/are incarcerated. They are about 130 more quilts to go. Are you willing to make a simple quilt to give to a young person whose parent is incarcerted?
My good friend Yvonne is coordinating our efforts with her friends that are organizing the camp that is being designed to meet the unique needs of these these kids. These quilts will be given to the kids when they go to camp next summer.
Quilt Construction Details:
The quilts for smaller kids need to be about 48 x 60 and for teens 60 x 84. They can be tied or longarmed quilted. These quilts need to be to me or Yvonne Clark by March 15, 2017 in order to get them packaged and mailed off. The quilts need to be appropriate for boys and girls, younger kids and teens.
A quick construction method could be to cut or purchased pre-cut 10" squares (often called a layer cake). 48 x 60 - sew 5 across and make 7 rows, then sew the rows together. Then, for the larger size, add one or more borders to get to to the 60 x 84 size. It would go very quickly for you.
Thank you for your thoughtfulness and willingness to participate in this ministry.
May you be blessed as you ministry to these kids in making a quilt for one or more of them!
"It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:25
34 “Then the king will say to the godly people on his right, ‘Come, my Father has great blessings for you. The kingdom he promised is now yours. It has been prepared for you since the world was made. 35 It is yours because when I was hungry, you gave me food to eat. When I was thirsty, you gave me something to drink. When I had no place to stay, you welcomed me into your home. 36 When I was without clothes, you gave me something to wear. When I was sick, you cared for me. When I was in prison, you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the godly people will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and give you food? When did we see you thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you with no place to stay and welcome you into our home? When did we see you without clothes and give you something to wear? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and care for you?’
40 “Then the king will answer, ‘The truth is, anything you did for any of my people here,[b] you also did for me.’
